Can't deploy Metro UI App on Windows 8 dev preview RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,  I've installed Windows 8 dev preview (BUILD) 64 bits + Visual Studio 2011.  When I try to create a new Metro App (C# or C++), I'm able to build it but there are deployment errors:

    2>Error DEP0700 : Registration of the application from layout "C:\Users\yogourt_\AppxLayouts\d657fb51-5ab9-4f33-b0aa-f6d138884685VS.Debug.AnyCPU.yogourt." failed for the following reason (please check the event viewer for possible additional details):

    2>AppX Deployment Register Operation on Package d657fb51-5ab9-4f33-b0aa-f6d138884685-0_1.0.0.0_neutral_neutral_6pz6svqf8818y from: C:\Users\yogourt_\AppxLayouts\d657fb51-5ab9-4f33-b0aa-f6d138884685VS.Debug.AnyCPU.yogourt.\AppxManifest.xml failed with error code: 0x80070002. ========== Build: 1 succeeded, 0 failed, 0 up-to-date, 0 skipped

    I've looked in Event Viewer and saw nothing so far.  I've tried several times to reinstall everything, but no changes.  I've a Dell Inspiron 530 + a brand new 2tb WD Caviar Green, is it possible that it could be related to Dell brand + new hard disk ?

    Thanks !

  • Interesting, my username is yogourt_   maybe there is a bug with ending with an underscore, I'll try with another live account, just to be sure.

  • Ok, I've tried with another account, also with an underscore but in the middle of the username, and it is working fine, so it might be related to the underscore at the end of my primary account.  I don't know if it could help you, but my primary account (yogourt_) is also my XNA / Windows Phone dev account.

  • Nope.

    I'm actually having the exact same issue and yet my username is piher

    Error	1	Error DEP0700 : Registration of the application from layout "C:\Users\piher\AppxLayouts\bd76e67d-8688-41c8-9327-4a8c61278c2eVS.Debug.AnyCPU.piher" failed for the following reason (please check the event viewer for possible additional details):	MetroPlayerTest1
    
    
    Error	2	Cannot register the bd76e67d-8688-41c8-9327-4a8c61278c2e package due to the following error: Class does not exist.
     (0x80070583). 	MetroPlayerTest1
    

     

    I did nothing to the app yet, just created it and ran it.

     

    I tried to go check the packaging tab of the appxmanifest but I wasn't able to modify anything except app name wich I did not try.

     

    EDIT : and by the way i have a dell laptop too
